Akwa United Fail To Extend NPFL Lead After MFM Loss

Nigerian Professional Football League (NPFL) leaders Akwa United failed in the bid to extend their lead at the summit after they were beaten 1-0 by their hosts MFM at the Agege Stadium on Friday evening in a rescheduled Matchday 8 clash.

Sikiru Olatunbosun was the hero for the Lagos-based side as he scored the only goal of the game on 36 minutes thus handing the home team a 4th home win of the season.

The slim loss means Akwa United (16 points) fail to extend their lead at the top of the table thus maintaining their one-point lead over nearest challengers and defending champions Plateau United while MFM (12 points) climb out of the relegation zone into the top 10.[tps_header][/tps_header]
